The 2015 allotment competition prizes were awarded at the meeting of the Full Council held on 30th September 2015.

The judging, as in previous years, was undertaken by the kind members of the Ringwood Garden Club.

Mr Atak, Chairman of the Ringwood Garden Club, reported that he and his three fellow judges had enjoyed the task of judging the allotments and had seen high standards on all sites, with the overall winner being exceptional.

He said that for some tenants, their plot was an oasis of calm and brought benefits beyond their productive capacity.

Cllr Mr Michael Thierry, the Town Mayor, congratulated the allotment tenants for their hard work. Andy Briers, Chairman of Recreation, Leisure and Open Spaces Committee, presented the prizes to the winners in the Allotment Competition. He thanked the Ringwood Garden Club, who carried out the judging.
